wild colonial “Be Nice or Leave” — that’s the deal at the Wild Colonial Tavern (T-shirts available). The quiz crowd is usually pretty nice, so form a team of one to four people and join in the fun. There are several categories like current events, local trivia, movies, etc. And it always ends with a 12-question music category with audio snippets. Some people worry that they will have to stand up in front of a room full of people and make an ass of themselves — and you are free to do that — but that has nothing to do with the quiz format. Your team simply writes down its answers on a piece of paper and hands it in. Great beer on tap. Win cool prizes.

“All The Cool People Will Be There”

12AM ON 22/01/2010
BY Beth Comery

derrynane bay Yeah, I know George Clooney is doing that thing on Friday night, and he’s an okay guy, but these things always feature an endless parade of self-absorbed dummies saying things like “I just had to do something.” And that ’something’ just happens to involve lots of television cameras. Here’s another option: Maurice (rhymes with ‘loris’) Collins proprietor of the Wild Colonial Tavern and noted trivia quizmaster sends along this invitation.

The Wild Colonial, with a little help from our pals at Narragansett Beer and Guinness, will be running the bar at a fundraiser for Haitian relief and for the social justice programs at St. Michael’s — the folks who helped bring us hits like The Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence,  AIDS Care Ocean State,  Southside Community Land Trust, CityArts and Community Boating. Cultural programming all day, headline act in the evening, kids games, etc.  And, for a measly buck you can buy a chance to win a week at a fabulous house in Ireland — our fabulous house in Ireland.

The event is Brigids Fire — the first party of the St. Patrick’s Day Season! And this picture here is taken from the above-mentioned fabulous Collins house in County Kerry, the Aunts House at Derrynane Bay. This place is unbelievably beautiful with mountains, surf, golfing, monastery ruins, and you can ride horses on the beach which is the best thing anyone can ever do.

edward woodward It’s the last Wild Colonial quiz of 2009! Form a team of one to four people and join in the fun. There will be several categories like current events, local trivia, this year’s dearly departed celebs, maybe Christmas . . . nobody knows.  And it always ends with a 12-question music category with audio snippets (and I won’t be the slightest bit surprised if there are a few wretched seasonal novelty songs and covers thrown in).  Some people worry that they will have to stand up in front of a room full of people and make an ass of themselves — and you are free to do that — but that has nothing to do with the quiz format. Your team simply writes down its answers on a piece of paper and hands it in. Great beer on tap. Win cool prizes.
